On Monday's Backchat, the arrest of Meng Wanzhou and Sino-US trade relations. The Global Times called the detention of the CFO of Huawei 'a declaration of war'. The Canadian Prime Minister insists it wasn't political. Beijing's response has been relatively restrained. What does this mean for Huawei - one of the largest suppliers of telecom infrastructure in the world? Is it too close to the Government to be seen neutrally? Is the Sino-US truce holding? Will China retaliate? Are we in Hong Kong in danger of becoming a victim in the trade conflict? Can Hong Kong maintain our special trade status under the Chinese “one-country” principle?
After 9.20, the digging up of platforms at the new MTR Hung Hom station.
